    Mountain bike pedals for five ten shoes

    Hi there,
    New biker here. I have decided to get a pair of five ten shoes in order to avoid clipless and i would like to know what flat pedals out there will fit well with these shoes.

    Also i notice that there are some small wholes on the bottom of the shoe and i am not sure what this has to do with the pedal.

    Anything with big pins or spikes will do.

    Mountain bike pedals for five ten shoes

    Canfield brothers Make it a kick butt flat, super thin, with removable traction studs. I wear 5-10's with them and could not be happier with the combo.

    Mountain bike pedals for five ten shoes

    I run Saint M80 pedals with my FiveTens... Outstanding grip, and you can find the Saints for under 80

    I think the main thing to look for in your budget would be removable/replaceable pins. It really is amazing the grip you get with 5.10's, even on not so great pedals.

    Two things I would look for in pedals:
    - Concave surface, where the middle (spindle area) is lower the front/rear edges. This gives a nice cradle for your foot.
    - Pins that are removable from the backside. In the event that you need to replace a pin, it is much easier to do from the backside. The Shimano Saint pedal pictured above has what I am talking about.

    if you are stuck to $50 & can't find concave then you can create a concave by using longer pins on the perimeter and shorter on the middle. the soles of the freeriders also are uniquely formed to hold the pedal also. hold the sole horizontally & look down the plane. this is why concave pedals work better

    Gee guys, I see the really expensive e13 and Canfield pedals and made it into the <$50 thread, but you left out 26 Predators and Ti spindle upgrades.

    The beauty of 510s is that they work with just about any shoe w/ pins.

    Depending on what country you are shopping in, you might find good pedal buys from Superstar, HT, VP, Wellgo. Nukeproof Electron plastic body metal pins? Looks good. Same pedal offered by Deity in USA.

    Had a good experience personally w/ Wellgo MG-1s. Using the Saints everyone's talking about right now, but tough to find for under $50.

    The holes on the bottom of those 510s are for the same thing the low tread on any shoe is for: It's a place for water to go so it doesn't get between the shoe rubber and the surface you are walking on. The tread also reportedly increases pedal grip a little, which is why the ball of the foot on the newest 510 Freeriders is slick.

    I just have one ride now wearing my FiveTen Impacts but the grip was worlds better than the running shoes I was wearing previously. The pedals I'm using are Straitline Platforms.

    I use Baron 5;10 on Wellgo MG-1 mags. They are absolutely fantastic pedals, really tough, light weight, very gripping but I've never suffered any significant gashes of the teeth like I did with them V12 things which sucked.

    Wellgo MG-1s mags sell for about 28-30 on ebay whatever that is in dollars nowadays.

    I use Transition Bikes stepdown pedals with my 5.10s and I am glued to them. Very light too.

    I ride with freeriders also with Speedplay Drillium pedals. They make a great combo.
